Celebrating the best of London's restaurant scene

Try signature canapés and ‘tasters' from the inimitable Yauatcha, great Indian flavours from City hot shot Brigadiers, Chinese delights from Andrew Wong's much-feted City offshoot Kym's, and jamon Iberica and cheese from Spanish champion Iberica.

Come and be wowed by the masterful food of Mayfair's Indian Accent, whose Delhi-based sister graces the World's 50 Best Restaurants List, or enjoy the daring creations from the team behind Galvin Restaurant Group who will be stirring their Michelin pots. Top Spanish gem Hispania, whose sister restaurant is the toast of Northern Spain, is another we're looking forward to trying.

There's also the vibrant Levantine flavours of exciting South Ken and Soho restaurant Ceru and the dreamy regional Thai flavours of Som Saa, masterminded by ex-MasterChef Andy Oliver.

More restaurants still to be announced...
